Mainlining

Merge Games have shared some more details about Mainlining, a point and click hacking adventure game developed by Rebelephant. It will be released on Nintendo Switch on June 20th, with pre-orders going live on June 13th. There will be a pre-purchase and launch offer, allowing players to save 15% off the regular price (14.99€ / £11.99 / $14.99) until July 4th.

Here’s some details about the game:

Mainlining is an exhilarating foray into the world of cybercrime! The game mixes dark and dry humour with a gripping narrative, that will have you hooked from the very first case. Following the government’s introduction of the BLU Pill Act and the Secret Intelligence Service’s reintroduction of MI7, all online personal data is accessible by the powers that be. Mainlining questions techno-ethics and asks whether it is acceptable for an organisation to have the power to look at personal data – what if somebody else had access to that information?
 
Mainlining is a refreshing take on the traditional point and click adventure. The entire game takes place on the simulated desktop of the protagonist’s computer. Assuming the role of a newly recruited MI7 agent and working within the remit of the Blu Pill Act, the player must use their cunningness, judgement and skill to gather evidence by hacking suspects’ computers and phones.
 
As an MI7 operative, your primary objective is to facilitate the arrest of the perpetrator and to ensure that the courts have sufficient evidence to hand out the longest custodial sentences possible. However, you’ll also have to make judgements on whether the case you’re working on is complete. Move in too quickly and you may miss leads linking your case to much higher profile cyber-criminals. Act too slowly and your suspect may detect you and escape.
 
In excess of five hundred criminals are known to operate within your jurisdiction – where will you begin?

This version of the game is getting some improvements / new features, only found on Nintendo Switch:

  • Bespoke keyboard input system helps you crack the case on-the-go!
  • Now includes touchscreen support for an immersive experience.

Finally, here’s some screenshots for the game:
